'In 1839, William Farr, the famed sanitary reformer said that: "A park in the East End would diminish the annual deaths by several thousands, and add several years to the lives of the entire population."
Good, fresh air was the answer then, and it would also stop the unwelcome cockneys coming up West to take the air in Regents and Hyde Park.'
